6:38 pm
ordinance] >>thank you very much. we have the mayor's office of housing to speak on these items? rejects good morning. i'm lydia ely senior project manager with the mayor's office of housing and community development. i'm very pleased to be here today to present these 14 resolutions to you all. these represent the culmination of about three years of work on behalf of the mayor's office of housing and san francisco housing authority. to convert 3500 units from public housing to
6:39 pm
privately owned and managed refurbished units that are sponsored by most of our community-based nonprofit affordable housing developers. the work that is being done on these properties today, the issuance of resolutions that you are reviewing in total over $700 million in construction resources for these projects will focus on really restoring these units to habitability. as you all know the housing authority has suffered under funding for many many years and as a result these units have phone into disrepair. they are going to receive about $500 million in rehab among the 35-among the 2000 units that we are addressing today. the work that will take place addresses five deficiencies in the building. like safety deficiencies. in other words, fire safety and sprinklers. the
6:40 pm
work will also address building envelope deficiencies. that means roofs, windows, etc. and of course of the units will receive upgrades to provide updated amenities for the residents benefit. this work has really been a collaborative effort with about 10 different city departments. led by our our office but mostly involving the planning department the building department, department of environment, dpw, working with us, puc, human services agency, this is really an all hands on deck effort. i think the city should be very proud of it. of course, the center that is a partnership with the housing authority which currently owns and manages the properties. on the financial side, the city is putting in about $100 million into these projects across both phases. again this is 3500 units. it may sound like a lot but in phase 2 alone were leveraging
6:41 pm
$330 million in private debt and $814 million in private equity. so, we are leveraging about 10-21 the city's investment in these properties. these properties are located across the subject of their 9/11 of our supervisorial district of this is unusual to have a presence and have such great activity and improvement of our housing across the whole city. today, we have representatives of a number of the developing teams. seven developer teams doing these 14 projects. a number of them are here if there are questions from you all about individual projects. otherwise i'll be happy to provide more detail and projects themselves or the financing if you wish? >> thank you very much. colleagues, any questions?
6:42 pm
>> just a quick question. in terms of your assessment and the amount needed to refurbish or rear renovate or fix, was it done on a sort of individual one-on-one or is this a 10 units that's probably on average cost about that much? >> well the property as you would imagine some were built in the 40s commit some of them were built in the 90s. across projects it was really a variation on what is needed. there's some very large ticket items that increase the cost per unit and for example seismic work that has to be undertaken for the whole building at a lot of cost per unit. but to answer question, it really does very a lot good i will say, in this phase 2, we are doing about $240,000 in rehab per unit on average. >> again that will vary depending on the property. some of them are in better shape because of the way they were constructed. some are in better shape because they are younger.
6:43 pm
but, yes, in phase 1 we had 14 projects also in our average was $150,000. so the units that were doing now are much greater need of repair. >> do you happen to have a breakdown of the units in regards to number of bedrooms? like, how many of these units are two bedrooms, how many are one and so forth? >> i don't have that on the bit i can tell you that the 14 projects, three of them are family project at 11 are was called senior disabled project. those of zero bedrooms studio bedrooms studio units and one bedroom. so, on the other hand, the family projects tend to have more units. we one project with 234 projects in time the town. we one of a similar size in the bayview. so, i can say
6:44 pm
generally we have more smaller units than family units, but i can get to that breakdown >> i really would appreciate that. i have a focus on family units and how we develop and support it so that information would be useful. >> the three family projects are à la many which are 150 units and that's in district 9. then [inaudible] north. 200 units in chinatown and that we have westbrook in the bayview-hunters point and that is 223 i believe. >> thank you >> colleagues, any further questions? will move on to public comment. anybody was to comment on items 2-15? seeing none, public comment is closed. >>[gavel] rejects any last comments or questions? can have a motion? >> i like to make a motion to move items 2-15

6:49 pm
years that in parcels that been removed from the master lease or added to the master leases. so historically they have been on a year-to-year term. associated subleases and that we have in place with businesses on commercial tenants under the subleases are on a year-to-year term. there's not really too much more of a next mechanical answer than that at this point. the checks doesn't make sense to operate-i mean, this is a new wave of business. what is operating on a year-to-year term? >> those are the terms that are in the lease that the navy presents. i will remind the board last year we did execute a similar amendment with a cooperative agreement to extend a multiyear basis until would sunset so we do not need to keep coming back each year. that is certainly something that we can talk with the navy about and see if with next year's amendment they would be amenable to further term which, i'm not sure if that is what you're asking, but we are
6:50 pm
willing to see if that's the case. to not have to amend it every year. >> it just makes more sense not to do it every year. unless you have it for many years. >> okay. seeing no other questions thank you very much. will move on to public comment. anyone wish to public on these comments seeing none, public comment is closed. >>[gavel] >> i like to make motion to move this 17-19 with a positive recommendation to the full board >> moved and seconded. >> we can take that without objection >>[gavel] >> mdm. clerk please call item 20 >> item 20, >>[reading ordinance] >> thanks. we have jamie with

6:52 pm
bart general obligation bonds and original ordinance is an estimate good i like to ask that the committee amend the original legislation to reflect what the bart board determined would be the tax rate factor and that is 0.008 0%. for bart geo bonds and that would bring the composite property tax rate per 2016-17 up to a little bit what, was estimated to 1.1792%. i do have just a couple of slides to put on the overhead. so, the last year's property tax rate was 1.82%-1.1826%. this year it's going down slightly. 1.1792%. that's based upon the schools and special district collective rate for their geo bonds go down just a little bit. to provide a
6:53 pm
comparative tax bill for last year compared to this year, the median taxable values not the market value, but the median assessed taxable values is about $500,000 for single-family single dwelling home in san francisco. so, that is the reason you see $500,000 from last year to this year the inflation that allowed by proposition 13, the inflation increases 1.5 to 5%. thus, the typical property tax bill for this evaluation could go about $73.14. if you have any questions or be happy to answer them. >> thank you for that expiration. colleagues, any questions? we do i pass out the amendment already sold we have him and him and the court has them as well. mr. rose can

6:56 pm
$1,276,000 .847. the first year of the lease would be $240,000, which is actually very close to the price we are already playing. given is this a question so be happy to answer them. >> okay colleagues any questions right now? mr. rose, can we go to report on item 21, please >> yes mr. chairman and members of the committee. on page 11 of our report we note hsa currently pays the annual rent for the 165 cap st. at two and $22,000 .37 so that would increase in the first year by 8.3% or 18,000.463 two 240,500 yard according to the real estate division, that 8.3% increase in rent is reasonable because the landlord has not increase the rent since expiration of the original
